===================================================================== 1) I've rebuilt iproute2 [ebuild R ] sys-apps/iproute2-4.14.1-r1::gentoo USE="-atm -berkdb -iptables -ipv6 -minimal (-selinux)" 0 KiB 2) I've done "emerge --update --newuse --deep @world" Total: 0 packages, Size of downloads: 0 KiB 3) I've done revdep-rebuild Your system is consistent And "emerge --depclean" stills gives the same message. I'm near the end of the portion inside the chroot of the install process. Will it break the system if I unmerge iproute2, and then depclean, and then revdep-rebuild? -- Walter Dnes <waltdnes@××××××××.org> I don't run "desktop environments"; I run useful applications
